Personal profile

Research Interests

My research focuses on developing and applying biomarker methods to explore environmental risk factors associated with chronic diseases, cancers, and complex disorders. This work includes both discovery-based approaches using protein adduct profiles to identify unknown risk factors, and targeted approaches using finger stick blood samples to extend the application of exposure biomarkers to molecular epidemiology.
